The low sensitivity of the two-tier tests (about 30% in early Lyme disease and 50% in late Lyme disease) and the significant seronegativity of Lyme patients (as many as 30010 to 50% of cases) suggests that more sensitive T cell-based laboratory tests should also be developed.
However, a recent analysis by Jackson et al using the United Network for Organ Sharing database identified several factors associated with the development of PTLD: recipient EBV seronegativity, younger recipient age, white ethnicity, closer HLA matching, and an agent other than tacrolimus as the main immunosuppressive agent, the latter perhaps a contributing factor in our case.
Seronegativity in both early and established RA is a major limitation of RF and ACPA, as it can delay initiation of treatment.
Baseline seronegativity rates for HPV-6, 11, 16, and 18 were 52%, 72%, 61%, and 72% in stratum A, 63%, 76%, 68%, and 87% in stratum B, and 60%, 79%, 72%, and 78% in stratum C.
WASHINGTON--Autoantibody seronegativity may be the best predictor of which patients will achieve remission in rheumatoid arthritis, but the question of whether and when to withdraw treatment still looms.
Risk factors for developing PTLD in the transplant setting include EBV seronegativity of the recipient with primary EBV infection, duration and type of immuno-suppression, and type of allograft (higher risk in small intestine, heart, or lung than in liver).
3%) * A negative anti-HCV test following the first MMT dispensation confirmed seronegativity at MMT Initiation.
Persistent EBV seronegativity is one of the most powerful predictors of not developing MS.
Remitting, seronegative, symmetric synovitis with pitting edema (RS3PE) is a syndrome with an acute onset, benign course characterized by rheumatoid factor seronegativity, edema on the dorsum of the hands and feet, symmetric distal synovitis, and flexor tendinitis on the fingers.
